Speaking at the Regions Tradition Pro-Am on Wednesday, Alabama HC Nick Saban refused to dive into detail in regard to the arrest of T Cam Robinson.
"We [discipline] internally, it’s not something that we do publicly and we’re not gonna do it today," Saban said. Robinson and DB Hootie Jones are scheduled for a June 16 arraignment hearing regarding weapons charges stemming from their Tuesday arrest in West Monroe, Louisiana. Saban wouldn't delve into specifics, but did at least hint at his mindset, saying, "Discipline is not necessarily just punishment, which a lot of people view it that way. It’s how do you change somebody’s behavior so they have a better chance to be successful." May 20 - 4:12 PM

Alabama players passionately defended recently arrested T Cam Robinson and DB Laurence "Hootie" Jones on social media.

Robinson and Jones were arrested Tuesday and hit with charges stemming from the stolen gun and marijuana that were found in the car they occupied. "I know both of them personally neither one of them would just steal a gun," S Ronnie Harrison wrote on Twitter. "Let's be real." Among other Twitter posts, DL Da'Shawn Hand said: "You can do a million things right. As soon as you make one mistake you magically just become a menace to Society... Don't make sense." Added Tre' Dunn: "Praying for my brothers, man they some good dudes! They not how the media is portraying them to be [shaking my head]." Robinson, who had eight knockdown blocks in Alabama's two playoff games against Michigan State and Clemson alone, is one of the most dominant and valuable players in college football. Jones was a 2014 four-star recruit.

Per a Ouachita Parish Sheriff's spokesman, Alabama T Cam Robinson and backup defensive back Laurence "Hootie" Jones were released on bond Tuesday.

The spokesman was unaware of the bail amount. Robinson and Jones were arrested in their hometown of West Monroe, La. early Tuesday morning and charged with misdemeanor marijuana and handgun possession violations. In addition, Robinson, the driver, was also hit with a felony charge of illegal possession of stolen firearms (a stolen gun was found under his seat). For that last charge, the All-SEC left tackle faces "not less than one year nor more than five years" in prison, per Louisiana law. The university along with HC Nick Saban is declining specific comment until they learn more.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler wrote that Alabama T Cam Robinson's "past mistakes could prove to be costly on draft weekend."

"A misdemeanor drug charge is a serious offense," Brugler noted, "but not one that will completely torpedo a player's draft stock. However, a felony weapons charge is a different story so Robinson's explanation for the stolen handgun will be obviously crucial." How much Robinson's Tuesday morning arrest actually effects his draft stock should depend largely on how the case against him unfolds. Right now, it is far too early to make draft prognostications. The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder has more things to worry about than the 2017 draft at this point.

The felony charge levied against Alabama T Cam Robinson related to a handgun that had been reported as being stolen from Baldwin, Alabama.

This, according to the police report on the incident. If convicted, the top tackle prospect would face at least a year in prison. He is also facing misdemeanor marijuana and handgun possession charges after being arrested in a West Monroe, Louisiana, park on Tuesday morning along with DB teammate Hootie Jones.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman argues that Alabama junior T Cam Robinson was the player the Tide could "least afford to lose on its 2016 roster."

He's probably right. While arguments could be made for DL Jon Allen, edge rusher Tim Williams or WR Calvin Ridley, the Tide have far more depth behind those players than they do behind Robinson. There's the fact, too, of Alabama tailoring its entire offense around Robinson's skill set, specifically his mauling brand of run blocking. "He's a great left tackle," one SEC defensive line coach said. "He is a hell of a player. He's not as good as (Laremy Tunsil) was as a pass protector. but he's physical and big and strong in the run game. He's definitely got first-round talent." Alabama lost All-American center Ryan Kelly and RT Dominick Jackson to the NFL and now faces the prospect of losing Robinson to criminal charges.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Alabama gained more rushing yards outside left tackle than anywhere else last season.

Not only did Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin use the Derrick Henry-behind-Cam Robinson strategy to matriculate the ball up the field, but they used it to punch the ball in once that had. Of Alabama's 33 rushing touchdowns, 14 came outside left tackle. Henry is now with the NFL's Titans. Robinson was charged on Tuesday with felony possession of a stolen firearm. He's also facing misdemeanors charges on marijuana possession and possession of a handgun in the presence of drugs.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that the program is in the process of investigating the arrest of junior T Cam Robinson.

"We are aware of the situation involving Hootie Jones and Cam Robinson and are in the process of gathering facts to determine what internal action needs to be taken," Saban said in a threadbare statement. Robinson and Jones were arrested at a West Monroe, Louisiana, park early Tuesday morning. They are facing charges for marijuana possession and possession of a handgun in the presence of drugs. Robinson -- perhaps the top tackle prospect in the country -- has also been charged with felony possession of a stolen firearm. He was released on bond following his arrest.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson was arrested early Tuesday morning on possession and weapons charges, including one felony charge.

The felony charge is for illegal possession of a stolen firearm and the other charges consist of illegal carrying of a weapon and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Robinson and teammate Laurence Hootie Jones were booked at 3:37 a.m. in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, and the pair is from Monroe, Louisiana. Robinson is viewed as one of the top offensive linemen in the country and is a longtime starter for the Crimson Tide, even playing through injury last season. Per beat writer Michael Casagrande, the arrest occurred in a parking lot after the policeman could smell marijuana. Alabama football players are currently on a three week break from school before summer classes begin.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson checks in No. 7 overall on Mel Kiper's Big Board.

"With 29 mostly dominant starts in just two years at Alabama, Robinson is already a known commodity around the NFL," he wrote. "The 6-foot-6, 327-pound left tackle is pretty close to the range of 'prototype' at the position and will be a top-10 pick with another solid season." Rivals' Mike Farrell wrote recently that he thinks Robinson would have been drafted ahead of Notre Dame T Ronnie Stanley -- who went to the Ravens at No. 6 -- had he been eligible for this spring's Draft.

Rivals analyst Adam Gorney called Alabama junior LT Cam Robinson "a physical specimen and the top offensive tackle on the [2017] board."

Gorney wrote that Robinson was "not dominant all of last season," but the analyst doesn't hold it too much against the top tackle prospect. He believes the 6-foot-6, 323-pound stud will "have a big year [in 2016] because Alabama will lean on its running game." We aren't quite sure how the Crimson Tide could lean on their running game even more than they did in 2015 (perhaps no quarterback at all?), but we understand Gorney's point. Colleague Mike Farrell believes that Robinson would have been drafted ahead of Notre Dame T Ronnie Stanley (who went to the Ravens at No. 6) if he had been eligible for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell wrote that had Alabama junior LT Cam Robinson been part of the 2016 draft class, he would have been taken ahead of Notre Dame T Ronnie Stanley.

That is quite the lofty hypothetical given that Stanley was drafted by the Ravens at No. 6. "[Robinson] gets criticized a lot for struggling at times with speed edge rushers or over-setting, but it’s all nit-picking," Farrell wrote. A member of the 2014 recruiting class, Robinson ranked as Rivals' No. 1 tackle for that cycle and Farrell has not budged off of his view of the 6-foot-6, 323-pounder as a potential top-5 draft selection. During Alabama's title run last season, Robinson allowed just 1.5 sacks.

Alabama sophomore LT Cam Robinson was wearing a white "contact" jersey in Thursday's practice.

Robinson sported a non-contact jersey in Wednesday's practice, as he's dealing with a strained shoulder, but the injury was minor enough that he was able to practice normally on Thursday. Last season, the 6-foot-6, 323-pounder allowed just 1.5 sacks. He's a rising star to watch heading into the start of the 2015 campaign. Earlier this summer, Sports on Earth's Matt Brown ranked Robinson as the eighth best lineman in the game despite the fact that he's just entering his sophomore season.
